  • Miele: 1/3 More & 5x the Value

    Feb 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use reliability more than worth the price.
    Cons: No pause after 6-7 mins; smallish bleach dispenser (that you actually do not need)

    Summary: After five years of Maytag Stack (MLG2000AWW; circuit board & door interlock failure) and 90 days (!) of LG Steam (WM2688HNM; circuit board failure; leaking pump; collapsed casing in stacked configuration), I was dispirited by the trends in large ... read more

    Pros: Cannot think of one for the washer.
    Cons: Cannot be fixed. Mildew builds up in the soap dispenser.   The service is terrible.

    Summary: Purchased a #4842 washing machine in July 2010. A fault would appear at the end of random cycles telling me to "close the door and confirm with start". Of course, the door was already closed. After several visits by non-Miele and then Miele ... read more

    Pros: There are NONE!
    Cons: Hideous, wrinkled, tattered clothes with holes. Machines always broken, expensive to fix. LEMONS! Don't buy.

    Summary: We paid around $4K for the Miele pair of large capacity Washer W4842 and Dryer T9820.  I was told they were a great investment and would last 20 years and make our wardrobe look great.  Nothing is farther from the truth.  These are the ... read more

    Pros: High quality in mechanical parts.  Heavy.  Well made.    Everything at Lowes seems  filmsy by comparison.

    Pros: seems to be high quality materials
    Cons: doesn't get clothes all that clean

    Summary:   I bought this machine in Jan 08 (26 months ago) along with the matching dryer.  I am lukewarm about it, and, if I had it to do over again, I would probably buy something else.  I bought this machine because my old Maytag ... read more

    Pros: Great cleaning action and spin cycle
    Cons: None

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: What's to not like about a twenty year life and industry leading performance?
    Cons: It is an investment up front. Oh, it is HEAVY, so get help moving it.

    Summary: If you don’t want to know the trials and tribulations of trying to buy a new washing machine and dryer, stop right here. This review is not for people that do not want to be bothered with too much (is there such a thing?) information. I seem to feel ... read more

    Pros: The service people are very nice, and prompt

    Pros: Get a rebate from our local utility
    Cons: Poor reliability and worst customer service support from Miele

    Summary: Purchased Washer and Dryer but after a month we have had our third service call for the dryer. Worst yet, Miele response leaves a lot to be desired and you will wait a long time to have a service tech to show up. Would not say the extra cost worth paying ... read more
